...a giant scratch on my clasp!

OH MY GOD! I was putting a suitcase in the attic and I put a GIANT scratch on the clasp of my (gulp) *new* SMP! :sad:

So, what should I do? I've heard people talk about steel wool and the like, but I think I'd rather take a more pay-a-professional-to-buff-it-out-for-me sort of approach. Is this something anyone has experience with? How much should it cost me? Will it be noticeable?

Thanks in advance for advice.

I am sorry to hear that. My seamaster is also new and the clasp has many scratches. That clasp is a magnet for scratches.

John himself has recommended using a scotchbrite sponge on the clasp. I myself have done it and it works. Nevertheless, one piece of advice that I received from the fellow members here was to learn to live with it. If you chase every single scratch down you will go crazy. I understand that it is new and it means a lot to you.

Hope that helps
